RB Samaje Perine - Washington Redskins
|5-11, 233||Born: 9-16-1995||College: Oklahoma||Drafted: Round 4|
News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 20): Perine left the tentative and slow running that limited his production in an earlier stint as starter behind and punched lots of strong runs through the Saints defense in Week 11. He'll be a cornerstone of the game plan going forward and deserving of Flex starts, if not RB2 looks in fantasy lineups.
General News (Mon Nov 20): partially participated in Monday's practice.
Week 12: vs New York Giants
Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

Recent Game Summaries
2017 Week 10 vs MIN (9 / 35 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 25 / 0 rec)
Samaje Perine filled in for Rob Kelley following an injury that knocked him out of the game. He didn't find much success as he had nine carries for less than forty yards. Samaje lacks explosion in the run game and the deficit didn't allow him to get in rhythm due to heavy passing. He did have a dump off pass that went for twenty-five yards. That was his biggest play of the day but he was mostly ineffective coming in for Rob. Samaje will struggle until he becomes a more decisive runner.
2017 Week 9 vs SEA (2 / 9 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Samaje Perine received two carries but it didn't have any impact. His carries were more of a relief effort.
2017 Week 6 vs SF (9 / 23 / 0 rush, 3 / 3 / 24 / 1 rec)
Samaje Perine had a tough time running the football against the 49ers. There weren't many holes open for him in this game as the offensive line was often getting pushed around. He also continues to look indecisive in traffic running the ball. He managed to grab three receptions in this game to go along with a receiving touchdown. Samaje has been ineffective as the backup and this game continued that trend despite his touchdown.
2017 Week 4 vs KC (6 / 27 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Samaje Perine had a difficult evening getting on track when Rob went down. His longest carry went for six yards but he was benched after fumbling. He hasn't looked comfortable in the Washington offense and the mistakes are burying him deeper in the dog house. The hesitancy in to hit running lanes and poor traffic running has made it tough for Washington to have him on the field.
2017 Week 3 vs OAK (19 / 49 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Samaje Perine struggled in this game as he didn't even manage four yards per carry. He often fell forward with his attempts but it was hard for him to find daylight. Perine was given nineteen carries as the offense was often on the field due to the Raiders abysmal offensive outing. He isn't involved in the passing game much so his role is limited to early down work. He exited in the fourth quarter due to an injury. Perine is struggling to get going and some of that can be attributed to his ability to pickup the blocking schemes.
2017 Week 2 vs LAR (21 / 67 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)
Samaje Perine did most of the heavy lifting in the second half as Rob went down with an injury. He didn't run efficiently but his twenty one carries helped eat up clock to secure the victory. His longest run went for twelve yards but he ran tough and will likely be the early down running back while rob is out.
2017 Week 1 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Samaje Perine was not involved in today's game. He is buried on the depth chart behind two veterans.
Latest NewsRedskins | Samaje Perine listed as limited (Mon Nov 20, 04:42 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine (finger) was limited during practice Monday, Nov. 20. Our View: Perine got it done in a big way against the Saints on Sunday. It was his first 100-yard game of his career (117 yards) and he scored a rushing touchdown. As the lead back for Washington, Perine has RB2 or flex appeal in Week 12 as the team is at home to play the Giants on Thanksgiving.
link to story Redskins | Samaje Perine tops 100 yards (Sun Nov 19, 09:31 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed 23 times for 117 yards and a touchdown and caught one pass for nine yards in a 34-31 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. link to story Redskins | Samaje Perine is best of the lot (Sun Nov 12, 09:12 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Samaje Perine rushed nine times for a team-high 35 yards in the Week 10 game against the Minnesota Vikings. RB Chris Thompson ran nine times for 26 yards, and RB Rob Kelley had just 10 yards on four totes. Our View: There's not much going on in the backfield here, and it's getting split up. We were hoping for more consistency and production now that the line is healthy, but the split is killing what little value each back has. At least Thompson catches the ball a lot and added three catches for 41 yards to his overall total. Perine had a 25 yard catch but only one target while Kelley caught both his targets but for a paltry 4 yards.
